It Hurts More Than Protects
a: Football helmet ~
b: boxing glove
What: "A football helmet is like a boxing glove; it serves a different role in practice than it does in theory...Theoretically speaking, boxing gloves protect the guy being punched and make the sport safer than bare-knuckle brawling."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
